LOOK: Orlando Bloom Gets Tattoo of Son’s Name, But Ends Up Spelling it Wrong

Orlando Bloom just got a tattoo of his son’s name on his forearm. While it was a sweet gesture to showcase his love for his son, there’s just one problem: it’s spelled wrong.

Orlando showed off his new ink on Instagram which was supposedly his son Flynn’s name, birth date, and birth time in morse code. “New #tattoo can you guess who?” he wrote in the comments. One eagle-eyed fan, however, quickly pointed out the mistake that Orlando’s tattoo artist, Balazs Bercsenyi, unwittingly made. Instead of spelling “Flynn,” the tattoo read “Frynn.”

Orlando and his artist, however, have acknowledged the mistake due to a missing dot and are already setting an appointment to fix it. And it’s a good thing too because no parent would want to have their child’s name misspelled on their body.

It just goes to show that if you’re tattooing something in another language, you need to make extra sure you and your tattoo artist got it right before you get it inked permanently. A year ago, Ariana Grande suffered worldwide humiliation after she had Japanese characters tattooed on her finger that actually spelled out “BBQ grill” instead of “7 Rings.” Orlando’s slipup may not be as bad, but it serves as a cautionary tale nonetheless.
